coconut chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!

Uh oh. These cookies I made are gonna get me into some trouble. They are so flipping delicious, I sort of wish I hadn’t tried one yet. They are perfectly chewy, the chocolate chips and coconut flakes are perfectly proportioned and the oats add a nice bit of texture to every bite. I used large flakes of unsweetened coconut rather than sweetened shredded coconut, and I think this gives them a more tropical flavor. The chocolate chips are semi-sweet, but I think dark chocolate could be a nice substitution if you have them!

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup + 2tbs flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 325.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking soda and then add to your wet mixture. Mix until just combined – be careful not to over mix. Stir in your oats, chocolate chips and coconut by hand. Spoon rounded tablespoons onto an un-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. ENJOY!
